...Following a nice relaxing, albeit hot, few days in the Land of OZ, the crew of the pirate ship board the Isa Manor Martini Blimp to spread their next bit of birthday cheer and reclaim the ship from dry dock. Having zigged and zagged their way through an unbelievable amount of air traffic, the Isa Manor Martini aviation team has been able to set the Martini Blimp down on an outgoing runway at Heathrow. (They will be taking off shortly as their services are no longer needed. The aforementioned pirate ship should be fully repaired and ready for sailing.) But, before the crew can go aboard, they must make their way to Manchester. "Captain, it seems we have bit of a problem here..." "Yes? And that would be what?" "Ah Captain, there's a bunch of snow on the ground and it's really, really cold. We're only dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirts..." "Get over it man, you're a pirate and pirates are never cold!!" "But Captain..." "Oh, alright - back to the ship to get the parkas and might as well take the River Mersey shortcut to beat the traffic." Once back at the dock...
Isa: "We're here to collect our ship."
Harbor Master: "Which ship would that be?"
Isa: "The one tied to the pier with the skull and crossbones flag."
Harbor Master: "That will be 10,000£"
Isa: WHAT??? You drank all of our rum!!
Harbor Master: "It wasn't that good."
Isa: "That was the finest rum the UK makes."
Harbor Master: "I rest my case."
With that, Captain Isa and the crew run for the ship, gather the lines and set sail to the Mersey. "Ha! That will teach them to mess with pirates!!" And as the ship comes into port at the south end of Manchester and the crew has donned their parkas, they break into song...
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (February 4th) filled with friends, family, snow boots, heavy winter coats, gloves, hats and shovels!! Oh, and let's not forget the nice hot toddies that come along with such nasty weather. Maybe a bit of hot buttered rum - not the UK rum - the good stuff from the Caribbean. Enjoy your day!!!
...As the crew stumbles around in the snow still wearing their flip-flops and landing on their asses every 30 seconds, Captain Isa spies a cozy looking pub and dashes off...
Happy Birthday, Mim! Beware of Captain Isa's martinis... they can send you tumbling overboard!
Have a fantastic day, wherever you are.
Happy Birthday Mim, hope you have a great day full with presents and booze!
happy birthday MIM.
Happy Birthday, Mim!!!
Hope you have a great day.
..........and in a flash of ridiculously bright green light, accompanied by every ManU fan who's ever lived (13 centuries worth - some are a little dead), comes Admiral Beerman, resplendent in a lovely fur-lined green speedo and goose down chestwig......
Halllooooooooo Miss MonkeyMim-person you, it is I, Beerman, here to make Happy at you on this, your Most Happy of Happy Days!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!! What in the hells is happening here??? If it wasn't for these 247 ManU fans, it would be a little on the chilly side out here on street. What is with white snow stuff? This is, how you are say, sodding England!!! There is no snow in England, except when Charlie Dickens is making up stories!!! Is crazy...there is what 34 mm maybe? People cannot make handle of this. Now in FreedomLand™ Central USofA, they are knowing what snow is like. They have special machines called "plows" that people make drive on snowy road and "plow" makes push all of snow away to side. See what not being a colony for 233 years does to a country? They are make invention to deal with winter, not throwing salt at problem. And all salt comes from Canada, so perhaps Mr. G. Gordon Brown would make consider re-taking Canada as a colony. Pffthh....enough about this...is Happy Day!!!!!
So, please to accept this life-sized and anatomically correct monkey suit, complete with groomed chestwig and stick for smacking other monkeys, and this life-sized man-slave, complete with shovel for removing snow stuff from your path as you walk down sidewalk or into elevators. Is good, yes? Man-slave comes with wig to be blonde, brunette, or red haired.
.......and in another really bright flash of green light, accompanied by one of the ManU fans still alive, leaves Beerman, flying at light speed into the pub Captain Isa is now very nearly passed out in........
Happy Birthday, Mim! Have a wonderful day filled with lots of love and joy!
